    I prefer the recoil impulse and tracking of the 19X/G45 vs the G17/G34.

    Follow-ups and transitions are consistently a bit faster on the timer.

    Finally, something besides feels.

    I have posted this before:Just shoot one and you will be able to tell the difference between a G45 and others.

    How much faster can you shoot the 45 and how much more accurately?

    I am not stating speed or accuracy in the shooting of the G45,just the way it feels and points.This is a statement that cannot be won,like caliber,grain weight,mfg.or what holster is best.Just try one,if you don't like it,okay,just move along.

    That is really a Joke as the Gen 5 G45 has several improvements over the earlier G19X and the breech face cut is an important one. Shoot both with the same ammunition and you will see why. You must be new to Glocks.

    You said a mouthful there. People tend to try to justify their decisions/purchases.

    That 320legion is an absolute class killer in my opinion. I have NOT shot a “production” gun that will run with that thing.

    Nice shooting.

    Glock 17 at 7 yds shooting as fast as the sights came back online.

    G45 should ship Monday. Got the Ameriglo version(I love the Ameriglo glock sites). Will run it side by side with the 17 and make a decision.

    With Glocks it's all about the trigger.

    I was a total G19 guy. Carried my gen 4 for a few years and shot lights out with it. Only thing was my pinky would just barely rest on the bottom of the grip. I was looking hard at the 19X , but I just didn’t like that yellowish color. Out comes the G45 , shot my buddies , bought my own and never looked back. As others have posted , it just feels good in my hands with the slightly longer grip and shoots fantastic for me. Only things I’ve changed were got rid of the Glock night sights for ameriglo with an orange front and American flag slide cover plate.

    As I,and others have posted,once you shoot a G45 you will appreciate what a superior pistol it is and buy one.

    I sold mine and went back home to my G19.
